In January 2015, Artelia was awarded the FEED for the new greenfield deep-water 3.5 million TEU port and logistics hub in Tema, already Ghana’s most important port.
Less than 5 months later, the engineering studies and design developed by Artelia’s maritime team Arteliawas used as a basis for the definition of the budgets, for the approval by the Ghanaian authorities and for the upcoming selection of the EPC Contractors responsible for the construction of the marine works.
The project is led by Meridian Port Services, a public-private joint venture between APM Terminals, Bolloré Africa Logistics, and the Ghana Ports and Harbour Authority. With a total investment of USD 1.5 billion, the new port foresees the construction of four deep-water berths, a new 4km-long breakwater and an access channel able to accommodate the world’s largest container ships. This investment will help create over 5,000 jobs.
This was a unique opportunity for our Group, says Alain Deforche: “Artelia was able to mobilise highly skilled engineering resources and port planning experts for this ambitious project in view of obtaining within 5 months permits to develop the project in a new market – the Republic of Ghana”.
Keeping with the fast-track character of the project, the new port should be operational in 2018.

Artelia safety meeting
Health, safety and the environment are fundamental values for Artelia.
They also represent a personal commitment based on the conviction that nobody should be injured and no environmental pollution should be caused on the operations we manage. This is embodied in Artelia International’s Go for Zero objective (which means no accident or harm to the environment caused on our operations).
This commitment lies at the root of several initiatives such as Safety Week, which was launched in Artelia International in 2013 and has since become a group-wide event. Its main aim is to spread a culture of health and safety throughout the group and the community.
It is in this spirit that the idea of the first Artelia safety meeting came about. It was organised in Paris on 16 April, with sponsorship from Shell.
The aim of this event was to discuss our best practices in the field of health and safety and to identify common challenges, so we can then work to implement solutions that are shared by major groups with a strong health and safety culture.
Some 20 people from a variety of companies (Shell, Total, Aéroports de Paris, ExxonMobil, VINCI Construction, Saint-Gobain, Bouygues Bâtiment International, General Electric, AIR BP) took part in this round table facilitated by Valérie Erhart, Artelia Global HSSE Manager of our partnership with Shell.
To close the round table, a “Best Practice” prize was awarded to VINCI Construction, represented by its Prevention Manager Jean-Philippe Bréot.
We should like to thank Shell and in particular Bernard Claeys, Global Engineering Strategy Manager, for its efficient support.
This first meeting is to be followed by others organised in France and in our international subsidiaries.

For the third year running, the Artelia Group is rallying its staff by organising a week dedicated to Health & Safety issues, for which the slogan is: “I act for health and safety!”
This event is a great opportunity for us to improve our knowledge of this issue, which must remain one of our main everyday concerns, and to share our best practices with our partners, clients and subcontractors, who are essential players in the context of our projects.
The two main themes for 2015 are risk analysis and raising the alarm while conducting our assignments. Events, training courses and discussion workshops will be organised at different group sites and certain building sites in different countries around the world.
